Cowboy Country is a large 15,000 sq foot dance hall and saloon complete with three dance floors on two levels, a large stage, pool room, full kitchen and two full bars. The décor is all Country. Rough cut cedar panels on all the walls and lots of rodeo and music memorabilia on the walls in the form of autographed guitars and photos. Cowboy Country opened for the first time in Dec of 1999. Prior to that the building, built in 1964, had housed many other noteworthy clubs under its roof. The most notable club housed there was The Silver Bullet which was open during those "Urban Cowboy" days of the 80's. Also notable is the fact that The Silver Bullet was the filming location of the cult classic "Thelma and Louise". It was the infamous scene of the crime that the girls were on the run from for the rest of the movie. During those days many famous national artists had cruised on by to play on it's stage. When Cowboy Country opened in 1999, it was to fill a need that had become unaddressed - Live Country Music. From 1999 until 2002 Cowboy Country introduced many new local bands to the local Country Music scene as well as giving some of the more established bands a grander stage and larger audience to play to. Some national artists were also brought in as well. There was a short hiatus from March of 2002 until June of 2003 and then Cowboy Country returned and has been open ever since. All in all Cowboy Country is the last of the local honky tonks left in Southern California. It has a complete and total Country feel yet is not intimidating to the new or non Country fan. In fact people of all walks of life and all ages frequent the club each and every night.
No better place than Cowboy Country!!! Awesome people, great ambience, the best bartenders. If you are into country music, line dancing, and even if you are completely new to it. This "big red bar" beats Incahoots, Montanas, etc... any day.
